Sandra Fluke auction closed down, ‘disturbingly high number of harassing responses’ cited

Sold! The auction for an intimate strategy session with Sandra Fluke has ended, with a winning bid of $400. We suppose that seems like a respectable amount, but it looks like conservatives anxious to engage with Time’s “Person of the Year” nominee off script were responsible for driving up the price. Breitbart’s Dana Loesch is calling foul, saying that Women, Action and the Media, the group sponsoring the auction, closed it down early to keep a conservative from winning.

While the auction was scheduled to end Dec. 5, WAM closed it down early, citing a number of “harassing responses.”

NOTE: We had a wonderful opportunity to make Sandra Fluke available for a consulting session with the highest bidder in this auction, but unfortunately, due to a disturbingly high number of harassing responses to this item, we have decided to close the auction two days early.  We congratulate the winning bidder, and we apologize to those who share our enthusiasm to collaborate with Sandra and expected an opportunity to continue bidding on this auction item.

Ah, what could have been. Is there a consolation prize, at least?
